Where to find Stark Robots

There are a couple of places to find Stark Robots around the map. The most straightforward method is to search for them at Stark Industries — though, keep in mind that this area is usually very busy. You can find Stark Industries in the northern portion of the map, inside a massive circle. Generally, we recommend that you avoid going here since it gets chaotic quickly and an enemy can easily take you out while you’re trying to complete the challenge.

The other way you can find them is by going to a Quinjet Patrol, which are jets that land in random areas around the map, guarded by the Stark Robots. At the start of a match, while you’re still on the bus, you’ll see several jets fly past you that will then settle in various locations and are indicated by blue smoke. You can also spot the Quinjet Patrols on your map by a white jet icon. If you’re going to use this method, try and land at one of the Quinjet Patrols that are far away from the busy areas to avoid running into other players. From our experience, going to the farthest one is usually the best idea.

Whichever method you use, you’ll want to look out for the tall, silver robots that are hostile toward you, so make sure you come prepared with a weapon. You’ll likely find some decent gear at Stark Industries, but it’s a high-traffic area and you’ll need to watch out for other players. If you choose the Quinjet Method, try landing at a building nearby to grab some loot before heading in to take out the Stark Robots.

How to make a Stark Robot dance

Once you’ve found the Star Robots, you’ll need to take one down and hack it. Depending on the weapon you have, this is easier said than done. With a shotgun, you can down a Stark Robot in just two hits, but if you’ve got a weaker weapon, it will take more to bring one down. At the Quinjet Patrol, it’s recommended to down all of the Stark Robots so they don’t interfere while you’re trying to hack one of them.

After it’s clear, hack the Stark Robot. When it reanimates, use an emote by pressing and holding down on the d-pad and selecting the emote of your choice. If you do it close to a Stark Robot that has been hacked, it will respond by dancing back at you. As soon as the Stark Robot dances, you’ll get credit for completing the challenge. In the video above, we did get credit for the challenge, even though it doesn’t appear like the robot was dancing.

The hardest part is getting to the point in which you can hack the robot. That’s why we recommend avoiding Stark Industries if you’re strictly going for this challenge since that area can be tough to get through due to how many people tend to land there. One tip we have is to bring a friend with you — they can help you down the robots and watch your back in the process. With this being a new challenge, players tend to flock toward the robots’ locations, so they might be busier than usual.

Another thing you should be aware of is that it can sometimes be tricky to get the robot to dance if there are other enemies nearby. When they’re hacked, they prioritize taking out enemies around you, so you should make sure the area is clear before getting them to dance. Once it’s clear, spam the dancing emote, and you’ll eventually get credit for it, even if it doesn’t look like the robot actually danced.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.

New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
